    Gym Accident Claims

    Do you work for a gym or are you an ex-employee or customer who has suffered an accident at a gym? If you have been injured in an incident that was not your fault, talk to us about gym accident claims.

    It doesn’t matter whether you were a customer or directly or indirectly employed by the gym, if your injuries were caused by working conditions and failings in health and safety or negligence on their part,  you could be eligible to claim thousands of pounds in compensation for which you deserve.

    Accident Claims

    Many of us choose to go to gyms to get healthy, stay in shape, and have fun. However, gyms can also be dangerous places containing heavy equipment with moving parts that can cause serious harm. It is therefore essential that strict health and safety rules are followed.

    Like any company, gym owners also have a duty of care towards all their staff and customers, whether directly employed, agency workers, or individuals who are just there to work out. They must provide a safe and suitable public space and working environment. If they fail to follow health and safety procedures and this causes an accident, they could be held legally liable for any injuries sustained and must pay the claimant compensation.

    Types of Gym Injuries

    Gyms are potentially very dangerous environments. Serious injuries can occur if proper standards of health and safety are not maintained.

    Some of the common ways injuries are sustained by staff and customers can include, but are not limited to:

    • Faulty equipment
    • Instructors providing poor advice on how to exercise or use the equipment
    • Hazards not being cleared away (e.g. water spills, free weights)
    • Slip and falls caused by negligence
    • Car park injuries
    • Exposure to harmful substances

    Some of the common injuries that are sustained can include, but not limited to:

    • Crush Injuries – From falling weights and faulty equipment.
    • Back Injuries – Due to manual handling accidents and slips, trips or falls.
    • Chemical burns – From employers not providing the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training.

    There is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim which starts to run out from the date of your accident. Therefore, you should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.


    AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION  in Gym Accident Claims

    All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two specific factors – general damages and special damages.


    The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed.


    However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work.
